The timeless, bestselling four-part epic that began with the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lonesome Dove takes readers into the lives of Augustus McCrae and Woodrow Call, two tough-as-nails Texas Rangers in the heyday of the Old West. Dead Man’s Walk As young Texas Rangers, Augustus McCrae and Woodrow Call--"Gus" and "Call" for short--have much to learn about survival in a land fraught with perils: not only the blazing heat and raging tornadoes, roiling rivers and merciless Indians, but also the deadly whims of soldiers. On their first expeditions--led by incompetent officers and accompanied by the robust, dauntless whore known as the Great Western--they will face death at the hands of the cunning Comanche war chief Buffalo Hump and the silent Apache Gomez. They will be astonished by the Mexican army. And Gus will meet the love of his life. Comanche Moon Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow Call, now in their middle years, are still figuring out how to deal with the ever-increasing tensions of adult life--Gus with his great love, Clara Forsythe, and Call with Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him--when they sign up to pursue the Comanche horse thief Kicking Wolf into Mexico. On this mission their captain, Inish Scull, is captured by the brutally cruel Mexican bandit Ahumado, and Gus and Call must come to the rescue, with the aid of new friends including Joshua Deets, Jake Spoon, and Pea Eye Parker, as well as the renowned Kickapoo tracker, Famous Shoes. Lonesome Dove Gus and Call, now retired from the Texas Rangers and settled in the border town of Lonesome Dove running the Hat Creek Cattle Company, are visited by their old friend Jake Spoon, who convinces Gus and Call to gather a herd of cattle and drive them north to Montana in order to start a cattle ranch in untouched territory. Gus is further motivated by a desire to see the love of his life, Clara Allen (nee Forsythe), who now lives with her children and comatose horse-trader husband in Ogallala, Nebraska. On the way to Montana they travel through wild country full of thieves, murderers, and a lifetime's worth of unforgettable adventure. Streets of Laredo Woodrow Call is back in Texas, a Ranger once again and a general gun-for-hire, but increasingly a relic as the westward sprawl of the railroads rapidly settles the once lawless frontier. Hired by a railroad tycoon to hunt down a dangerous bandit named Joey Garza, Call sets out once again with a hapless Yankee named Ned Brookshire who works for the railroad company that hired Call. Call's old friend Pea Eye Parker--who initially refused to join the expedition because of his family--sets off with the Kickapoo tracker Famous Shoes to try to catch up with Call, until he runs into troubles of his own. The long pursuit of Garza leads them all across the last wild stretches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.

Die Wiederentdeckung des größten Klassikers der amerikanischen Literatur – erstmalig seit 1929 in neuer Übersetzung. »Da ist ein Land der Lebenden und ein Land der Toten, und die Brücke zwischen ihnen ist die Liebe - das einzig Bleibende, der einzige Sinn.« Am 20. Juli 1714 stürzen in Peru fünf Menschen in den Tod, als eine von den Indios erbaute Hängebrücke reißt. Ein Franziskanermönch, Zeuge dieser Katastrophe, beginnt den Lebensgeschichten der Toten nachzuforschen. War alles blinder Zufall oder höhere Fügung? Doch je mehr Berichte, Anekdoten und Erinnerungen er zusammenträgt, desto weniger kann er einen höheren Sinn erkennen in dem, was diese Menschen antrieb: die Liebe in ihren unterschiedlichsten Formen. Und vielleicht ist diese Liebe das Einzige, was bleibt.

Rückkehr mit Hindernissen Als Sadie Miller sich nach zehn Jahren das erste Mal auf den Weg in ihre Heimatstadt macht, kann sie ihr Pech kaum fassen: Noch bevor sie überhaupt in Copper Ridge ankommt, trifft sie auf Deputy Eli Garret, der sie wegen der Exzesse ihrer wilden Jugend nicht in guter Erinnerung hat. Eli ist von Sadies Rückkehr tatsächlich alles andere als begeistert und noch weniger davon, dass sie ein Bed & Breakfast auf seinem Familiengrundstück eröffnen möchte. Allerdings kann er so rund um die Uhr ein Auge auf die Frau haben, der schon immer sein Herz gehört hat ...

May Chinn träumt davon, Pianistin zu werden. Aber in den 1920er Jahren ist es unmöglich, sich als Farbige in New York zu behaupten. Als ihr ein rassistischer Professor sagt, dass sie keine Chance auf eine große Karriere hat, studiert sie Medizin. Auch hier wird sie mit heftigem Widerstand konfrontiert - und doch gelingt es ihr, die erste schwarze Ärztin New Yorks zu werden. Kuwana Haulsey hat dem faszinierenden Leben der Ärztin May Edward Chinn (1896 - 1980) ein poetisches Denkmal gesetzt - ein Leben des leidenschaftlichen Kampfes für die Ärmsten der Armen in Harlem. Immer wieder setzte sie ihr eigenes Leben aufs Spiel, um andere zu retten, führte Operationen auf Küchentischen durch und kämpfte darum, junge Mädchen vor einem Leben auf der Straße zu bewahren. Die Tochter eines noch als Sklave geborenen Mannes war in der "Harlem Renaissance" aktiv, einer von politischen Unruhen und künstlerischen Aufbegehren geprägten schwarzen Bewegung im New York um 1920, die sich für die Rechte der Farbigen einsetzte. May Chinn war Mitglied der Akademie der Wissenschaften sowie eine anerkannte Pionierin im Bereich der Krebsforschung.
